Npn quasi ldo voltage regulator

NPN "Quasi-LDO" Voltage Regulator

  • The NPN-Quasi-LDO has the following Characteristics:

    • Requires the input voltage to be at least 0.9V to 1.5V higher than the output voltage

    • Has higher Ground pin current than the NPN-Darlington, but less than the PNP-LDO Voltage Regulators

    • Requires an output capacitor, but, generally, has no specific ESR requirement like the PNP-LDO
